I’m Kristin Barendsen, and my business is Barendsen Editorial. I write and edit copy for corporations, universities, magazines, and book publishers. This site describes my writing and editing services and features a selected portfolio of my marketing writing, journalism, and essays. It also highlights the book I co-authored (Photography: New Mexico). Or, you can cut to the chase and check out my resume.

Featured Projects 

I wrote and edited the copy on the Verizon Innovative Learning app challenge website. Kids in underserved middle and high schools created concepts for apps that would solve a problem in their community. Winning teams received Android tablets for each student, and teams won money to fund their schools' STEM programs.


I edited the book Standing at the Edge by Roshi Joan Halifax, slated for publication by Macmillan in May 2018.

I wrote the script for this animated video for Oracle Healthcare, presented at the 2017 Healthcare Information Management Systems Society conference in Orlando.

My essay "The Drumpf Pinata" appeared in Nailed magazine in January 2017. 

My essay "The Bear Felony" was published in Gravel magazine in September 2017.
